JOAN OF ARCADIA
TV Executive Producer, novelist and new Catholic, Barbara Hall (Judging Amy, I’ll Fly Away), has a CBS/Sony Pictures TV pilot going ahead. The Hollywood Reporter describes the show’s premise as “centering on a contemporary Joan of Arc who has God appear to her in a different form every week.” Cast in the pilot, so far, are Mary Steenburgen (Oscar winner for Melvin and Howard) and Joe Mantegna, who will play Joan’s parents. Amber Tamblyn (The Ring) will star as Joan.
Please keep the development of this show in your prayers. It could be great.
